Irene Schleicher

Manager, Office of the President

“Voting is the most powerful non-violent tool we have.” Rep. John Lewis


I am responsible for supporting the president, board of directors and various projects that advance the work of the Foundation. Prior to my work at Marguerite Casey Foundation, I worked at the University of Washington’s School of Social Work as the assistant to the director of the Social Development Research Group.

I have provided executive support for over 25 years in various positions, and I am committed to the nonprofit sector. I have a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley.

I joined the team in 2014.
